Attractions

There’s never a dull moment in the Reno/Sparks region. Nestled close to the picturesque Sierra Nevada mountain range and the world-famous Lake Tahoe, we have something to offer everyone. It must be why our community grows year after year.

The weather is comfortable here, offering residents 300 days of sunshine a year. The warm sun greets you most days, humidity stays low and rainy days are few and far between. It’s one of the reasons why the Reno/Sparks region is considered the perfect place to host premiere special events.

Hundreds of thousands of tourists and adventurers flock to the region for a number of well-known northern Nevada attractions. The Great Reno Balloon Race, Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off, Shakespeare Festival, Hot August Nights Classic Car Event and the month-long Artown are just a few annual events you won’t want to miss. For sports fans, the region is home to the Reno Aces Triple A baseball team, as well as the University of Nevada’s notable athletics teams.

The moment outdoor enthusiasts catch a glimpse of the Truckee Meadows and the surrounding scenic foothills, they’ll fall in love with the region. It’s the perfect backdrop for running, walking, cycling, skiing and other activities. There are 15 ski resorts within a 90-minute drive, as well as 50 golf courses and thousands of miles of mountain biking and hiking trails. The region features several lakes that are perfect for fishing and boating.

While we’re located less than an hour’s drive from the spectacular Lake Tahoe, there are plenty of water activities to enjoy locally. The Sparks Marina boasts 80 acres of water for swimming, boating, fishing, scuba diving or picnicking near the water’s edge. The Truckee River runs through Reno and Sparks, perfect for rafting, tubing and kayaking right in the heart of the town. More than 50 beautiful parks dot the area and offer no shortage of recreational programs.
